Three years ago

My brother gave me a day-to-day calendar for 2008 for Christmas that counts down the days until Bush is out of office (January 20, 2009, by the way). Every day there is a different quote from Bush or plunder he was involved in. What I’ve learned over the past year is he is stupider than I had originally thought.

Yesterday’s quote was not a quote from Bush at all. It was from a shopper at the Ferragamo store in New York City to Condoleezza Rice on September 1, 2005. If you remember Hurricane Katrina has just happened and thousands of people were standed in New Orleans and other coastal towns. This shopper said to Rice, “How dare you shop for shoes while thousands are stranded and homeless?!”

I believe this statement basically sums up the entire attitude of the Bush administration – depraved indifference.
